Integrates diverse types of omics data across mammals to advance understanding of the genetic basis of gestation and pregnancy-associated phenotypes and to accelerate the translation of discoveries from model organisms to humans. GEneSTATION provides the data and tools to easily explore pregnancy from three complementary perspectives, EVOLUTIONARY, ORGANISMAL, and MOLECULAR, at three levels of synthesis. At the first level, individual gene pages integrate the EVOLUTIONARY, ORGANISMAL, and MOLECULAR perspectives in three easily accessible tabs, providing a comprehensive picture of the breadth of the data available for a single gene and introducing researchers to analyses and data that they have not previously considered. At the second level, individual analysis pages provide access to genome-wide information from a single perspective, such as natural selection in the human lineage, differential expression in complications of pregnancy, or protein-protein interactions among genes known to be involved in pregnancy. At the final level of synthesis, the Gene Set Analysis tool and the novel ‘SynTHy’ (Synthesis and Testing of Hypotheses) tool enable researchers to synthesize on-the-fly the many types of information available through the development and evaluation of testable hypotheses.
